The Pan-Florida Challenge is on a mission to prevent and fight cancer, starting in childhood. On October 29, 2021, the organization hosted the 3rd Annual Pan-Florida Challenge Golf Tournament, which was attended by 138 players and guests at TPC Treviso Bay in Naples.
The tournament included 18 holes of golf, live and silent auctions, dinner and cocktails, a raffle and prizes. All proceeds from the tournament go directly to supporting Pan-Florida Challenge’s mission to fund cancer prevention research and education programs while providing cancer-fighting food to undernourished children across the state of Florida.
“We are so grateful for our co-chairs, sponsors, players, and volunteers who make this event possible,” Jeri Goetz, Executive Director at Pan-Florida Challenge, said. “The tournament is a wonderful day spent with friends and supporters who share our mission of cancer prevention. The tournament raised over $100,000, a 200% increase from the previous event. We are looking forward to our next event, the Pan-Florida Challenge Cancer Ride that will be held on March 26-27. Registration for the ride is now open, and we can’t wait to see everyone there.”
The tournament was held at TPC Treviso Bay, a 7,367 yard Naples golf course that is part of the PGA Tour’s Network of Tournament Players Club Courses. In 2009, it was the venue for the annual ACE Group Classic, a tournament of the Champions Tour. It is located on 188 acres, with several holes adjacent to the Rookery Bay National Estuarine Reserve.
